Do you miss heading to Seattle Center on Labor Day weekend for all-day music and fun? Have you been waiting to hear the next Capitol Hill Block Party line-up? Well, introducing the inaugural DAY IN • DAY OUT Music Festival, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, September 4-5, 2-10 PM, at the Fisher Green Pavilion in Seattle Center. This latest fest is produced by Daydream State, the team behind Capitol Hill Block Party, Neumos, Barboza, and Block Party Presents programming, and revives the tradition of those beloved weekend-long music celebrations.  

“After an incredibly difficult year for artists, fans and our local creative community, we’re excited to celebrate the return of live music by providing a new platform to revive the festival scene in Seattle,” said Daydream State Executive Director Jason Lajeunesse. “For this new single-stage event, our goal was to curate complementary and diverse daily lineups that offer the city’s music lovers a two-day mixtape experience to close out the summer.” 

DAY IN • DAY OUT is starting out strong with a stellar schedule featuring two headliners who stylize their band names in all capital letters: Scottish electropop trio CHVRCHES and Grammy-winning producer KAYTRANADA. Northwest faves fill out the line-up, alongside local DJs playing between sets.

Fisher Green Pavilion will feature an all-age viewing lawn with designated 21+ areas, including a indoor-outdoor beer garden and a VIP lounge deck. 

DAY IN • DAY OUT are also participating in Seattle’s ongoing equitable recovery efforts by teaming up with the Seattle Fire Department to offer 100 FREE one-day festival tickets to those who get their vaccine at one of the Welcome Back Week pop-up clinic sites later this month (more info here). And the festival presents the launch of Bloodworks Northwest’s campaign, Music’s In My Blood, aimed at attracting 10,000 donors between Labor Day weekend and year’s end to combat our region's historic blood supply deficit.

“The safety and wellness of our community is critically important to our team, which is why we are partnering with impactful organizations like the Seattle Fire Department and Bloodworks Northwest to support both immediate and long-term health initiatives to keep our city thriving,” said Event Sponsorship Director Kate Harris.  

Tickets go on sale here at 10:00 AM PST, and you can follow the fest on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for festival updates.
